At NLP, we understand the unique needs of children and strive to offer efficient, stress-free and high-quality care in an environment that is conducive to the well-being of your child.
Lacerations occur commonly and may require treatment. We provide necessary treatment with stitches, glue (Dermabond), special bandaging or staples for your child’s lacerations to help them heal as quickly as possible.
Children are at a higher risk of sustaining fractures to the upper and lower extremity bones because of the mineral density and increased growth flexibility. Because children’s bones and growth plates are still developing, it is essential to make sure any fractures are appropriately set to allow for normal development and growth. There are many different types of fractures, ranging in presentation and severity. If your child has fallen or otherwise hurt themselves and you notice excessive pain or swelling, bruising, or an obvious deformity, these may be indicators that your child has sustained a fracture. Your child should also see a pediatrician if you notice they are unable to move or use the injured area as they would normally.
At Night Lite Pediatrics, we provide onsite digital x-ray services at all of our locations, so you and your child can receive the answers you need as quickly as possible and leave our office with the most effective treatment plan. We can provide you with digital copies of the X-Ray thus decreasing the need for multiple exposures to radiation, and we can refer your child to appropriate specialists when necessary.
